Converting to 36-2 Trigger [13B]

I am in the process of converting over to a 36-2 trigger wheel, as the Stock Crank Angle Sensor [CAS] has given me a ton of issues.

I am thinking that I will be able to simply change the Adv Pickup settings to match the settings provided with the Setup Wizard under the "36-2 Crank VR & 0 Cam" configuration.

If this is the recommended method then I will aproach it this way, and adjust the injector/ignition phasing and turn on the Eng Cycle = 1 Rev setting.

Otherwise, if it's recommended to start from scratch then any help would be appreciated.

Attached is the calibration I am using for my car

Thanks!

Always use a provided base

Always use a provided base cal and reconfigure from there.

Finally got back on trying to

Finally got back on trying to sort out this issue, and was able to get parts made for the trigger wheel conversion. I was messing with the Adv Pickups settings and also tried using the "VR 36-2" base calibration as a base with no sucess. I've measured the signal and looks pretty good and consistent:

Reved it a few times and looked OK. I wanted to see if I can get help converting my known good "12+1" calibration to a "36-2". Attached is a picture of the installed trigger wheel at TDC, a drawing of the wheel, and my calibration.

Looks like you've got a Hall

Looks like you've got a Hall crank sensor.  Did you change the 36-2 VR cal for a Hall sensor?  Oscope video doesn't show us much.  Only 3 visible edges and the voltage scale is set too low.  Try a longer time per division and higher voltage scale.  

I'd start with the 36-2 VR cal, change the crank/cam settings for Hall Effect (see other Hall cals for example) and then do a cal comparison to your tuned cal and copy everything over that's different (beside the crank/cam stuff).  You'll have to re-sync the timing but after that you should be able to start and run the engine.

I did, I took the 36-2 VR

I did, I took the 36-2 VR calibration settings and applied them to my original File. But I'll go ahead and try what you suggested, the only worry is that when I first tried that (and changed the VR sensor settings to Hall) the engine speed during cranking showed ~550rpm when normally it should be ~190rpm. I had also switched the Engine Cycle = 1 Rev on but no luck.

Hoping I can give this a shot in the next day or so and will report back.
